    This isn't a site to buy anything on, but it has become one of my favorite herbal sites. It gives you very good pictures and recipes of the different wild herbal foods and shows you how to harvest them. It is called Prodigal Gardens.

    The herbalist who has this site, Rose Barlow believes in the tradition of healing through optimal nourishment using simple, safe herbs found in our own backyards, prepared by our own hands. She specializes in nutritive herbs, developing recipes for wild foods and integrating wild food into modern diet and lifestyle. She does conduct workshops.

    This is what I am working on in my own life. I hope you all will at least take a look at this site. It is a site of learning.

    Here's another one, especially for those of us who like to provide our own foods/medicines.

    www.foraging.com What a ton of information!

    I'm sure this has been posted here before but I just "discovered" it. Good site for learning what is edible/medicinal in your neck of the woods. :)

    I wanna insert my recommendation for rosemountainherbs. They had some herbs that I had read about in some of my older herb books and I wanted to buy them, but had trouble finding. They had these herbs in small quantities (4 oz and on up) and what I considered good prices. All of the packages they sent me this week are dated as being packed in Dec 06. And they were quick to send me what I bought.

    I order from MountainRose on a regular basis. I have found if they send something you are not happy with they will replace it with no further cost to you.
    And...the stickers on the bags can be pulled off and used to label jars (for better herb storage)
    Horizonherbs are great folks to work with too, great place to get fresh herb and root.

    I have been looking through the sites and Lord there are a lot of stuff on here. Can anyone point out a certain site that deals with herbs for bad back and neck pain.
    Thanks

    How have I not seen this thread before?! Most of my favorites but three are here:

    Kiva's site for information:
    http://bearmedicineherbals.com/author/admin

    I usually just go to google type "Kiva Rose" and the herb or condition I'm researching and google takes me to one of her writings. She has several blogs she contributes to.

    But I do that with all herbalists I like. The others are Jim McDonald and Lady Barbara's Garden.

    Jim's site for info:

    http://www.herbcraft.org/

    You can buy herbs from Lady B and that's where I go first to buy tinctures I don't make on my own.
    http://www.ladybarbara.net/

    If she doesn't make it, then I go to Mountain Rose herbs and on down the list, all the rest already listed in this thread.
